Justice Defined | News, Sports, Jobs


To the editor of the Journal:

As part of the celebration of the birthday of the United States on July 4, the date of the approval of our Declaration of Independence in 1776, we the people pledge to advance justice.

What is justice?

Our history shows that we have moved from righteousness for the few to righteousness for all.

In drafting our Declaration of Independence and Constitution, the authors used our core belief in individual freedoms to create our minimalist federal government that created justice for our few wealthy white men.

In our history, we have advanced through our many progressive revolutionary rights movements when we have used scientific methodological justice and all rights for all ethical justice to create our militant national government that created and advanced justice for all.

Rights are interdependent goods and services that are directly available to all and beneficial to all. A right is not absolute with priority over all other rights, and when there is a conflict between the rights, a synthesis is created.

Rights movements include the New Deal (workers’ rights), civil rights, environmental rights, and feminist rights movements.

Scientific Methodological Justice for All uses data-driven research to justify our theory of historical progress and to document our current conditions.

All Rights for All Ethical Justice for All assesses our progress and conditions for building laws to advance justice for all, and includes:

Economic rights for all include:

1. Create taxes that are more progressive (increase tax rates as income increases) and redistributive (distribute income more equitably by raising taxes on millionaires and billionaires and redistributing them to all).

2. Increase our income tax rate for millionaires and billionaires from 37% to 50%.

3. Create better paying infrastructure jobs when unemployment exceeds 4.5 percent.

4. Increase our national minimum hourly wage from $ 7.25 to $ 15.

5. Create our monthly basic income of $ 400 for all (Social Security for all).

6. Advance equality rights in the workplace, including women receiving equal pay.

The rights to education for all include life-long public education and training funded by taxes and administered by the government.

Environmental rights for all include stopping man-made climate change and creating green jobs.

The rights to health care for all include lifetime dental, hearing, medical and vision care, funded by tax and administered by the government, without any outlay.

Political rights for all include freedoms of expression and assembly.

Religious rights for all include the freedom of religious belief.

Everything includes all workers, retirees, disabled, unemployed, students and infants, as well as all genders / sexes and races.

Justice for all.
